Free agent cornerback Charles Tillman is hoping to return to the Carolina Panthers for a 14th NFL season. According to the New Orleans Times-Picayune, Carolina is the only team Tillman wants to play for in 2016 once he is fully recovered from the torn ACL that cost him a chance to play in the Super Bowl last season. "I just want to play for Carolina," Tillman said Saturday as he assisted former Chicago Bears teammate Matt Forte with his annual football camp in Slidell, La.
